ST. LOUIS, Missouri - Two big victories at Enterprise Center in St. Louis helped the Winnipeg Jets pull out of a 2-0 deficit in their best-of-seven series with the Blues. That was the goal the team set out to achieve, and when Kyle Connor slid home the overtime winner on Tuesday night, it was mission accomplished.
"Each night is a new challenge. In Game 3 we saw lots of goals and (Tuesday), not that many," said defenceman Josh Morrissey. "It's going to change each night and you kind of have to roll with the punches. You can never get too high or too low. Just focus on the task at hand which is trying to get to four wins. That's really all we're after and we're excited to be going back 2-2."
Three of the four games in the series have been decided by one goal. Each team has converted three times on the power play, and memorable saves have been made at both ends of the rink by 25-year-old goaltenders.
Yes, this series is tight, and Jets head coach Paul Maurice doesn't expect that to change now that it's down to a best-of-three.
